So after 6 years with my car, i think its about time to get some more power out of it.
I bought my S/C kit from a forum member and also my MS3.
I just recently got the S/C and it seems to be in perfect condition, Teflon coating has no scratches the bearings also seems to be in great shape, there is no movement (i am not a mechanic). I've added a pic and a video below for your impression (1. pic 2.video)
My setup will also include 640cc fuel injectors (Flow Force), an inter-cooler (EBAY), iridium spark plugs (NGK BKR7EIX11) and FM stage 1 clutch.
I will probably use dual throttle body to maintain a good idle.
so i have been reading almost every thread possible on the 13 pages that we have on this forum and will appreciate it if you guys can help me with the question i am still wondering about.
1. This bracket should be connected to the S/C top (to the cover where the air is blown out) to where i should connect the outlet that i circled in red? (pic 3)
2. What is the round bracket? is it a custom made? how to use it? i also have the FFS mounting bracket. (Pic 4,5,6)
3. I know this S/C was set aside for a while and wanted to confirm the oil level, i took a syringe with a small hose and tried to suck it up but failed to do so. i am thinking to turn the S/C upside down and let it drain to to a cup so i can measure how much oil i have, any other suggestions?
if i am not mistaken there should be 100ML of oil?, should i use loctite for the draining screw?
Any other tips suggestion will be more than welcome.
